Awesome Chef Client News!


#1

Ohai Chefs,

Today we have a few exciting news items on the Chef Client side.

  1. Chef Client 12 Release Candidate is now available.

Check out our blog post


about
the first release candidate of our next major version of Chef Client.

We’re trying to ensure that the migration path to Chef Client 12 is as
frictionless as possible. We need your help in order to do this. Give this
release a test drive in your infrastructure and let us know if you’re
running into any issues. We’ll be ready to help :slight_smile:

  1. All AIX, All the time!

We are also very pleased to announce that we now have a technical preview
of the Chef Client for AIX 6.1 and 7.1 on the IBM POWER platform.

If any of you happen to have an IBM POWER system hanging out that could use
some love, feel free to install and test this out. More information on the
platform will be coming in the near future, but we wanted to let you get
your hands on it as soon as possible!

(note: we do not support AIX as a knife workstation)

I’m relatively certain the syntax in the blog post is incorrect:

[‘private_chef’][‘lb’][‘chef_max_version’] = 12

I THINK you mean:

lb[‘chef_max_version’] = 12

I did read the link but still have a question: does it worth a try inside an os400 Aix emulation ?

(the try of chef client on os400 is in my to-do list for a while but I’ve less freedom on this system, may it worth an effort from me to free time for it or am I the only one wishing to drive os400 systems with chef ?)

I assume you’re talking about the OS/400 PASE?

Currently we don’t have any plans on the roadmap to support OS/400 PASE
binaries, even though the AIX Chef Client is compiled with IBM XL C/C++. I
suspect that the required pointer alignment special-handling would make
Ruby a non-starter.

Ok,I’ll keep the abandoned way of managed node for this I think (I’ve some others tooling like IBM svc and brocade San switches I would like to manage through chef too, so managed node sounds the way to go for this edge case)
